Airvet scores $14 million (pet telehealth)
Airvet, a Los Angeles-based telehealth platform for vets, closed a $14 million Series A funding round.
The funding was lead by Canvas Ventures and included e.ventures (investor in pet food home delivery startup NomNomNow) and Starting Line (investor in health monitoring cat litter startup PrettyLitter.)
Like other telehealth companies, the company has experienced rapid growth due to COVID-19. The new financing will help the company meet the increase in demand for its service.
Airvet’s primary product is software that helps vet clinics connect to their existing clients. However, they also offer direct-to-consumer triage support when the primary care vet is unavailable or when a pet owner does not have a primary vet. The company has a network of 2,600 vets and trainers offering telemedicine recommendations.
The company was founded in 2018 by Brandon Werber, son of celebrity veterinarian Dr. Jeff Werber.
